Professor Griffin calls them “wizards” in S1: E8 (RAI English), but I bet that was a mistake since wizards are magical beings and the Specialists don’t have magic powers. The first time I saw this episode, I thought maybe “wizard” had a different meaning in the Winx Club world, but that can’t be with characters like Saladin and Nabu around.
So if the Specialists don’t have magic, are they humans? They don’t act like they are since “human” seems to equal “earthling,” and none of the Specialists are from Earth.
Not wizards, not humans but human-like, non-magical…what in the world are they?
On the Redfountain page at the official website, it calls Codatorta a “magician.” That’s different enough from a “wizard.” I guess the Specialists are just boys who learn magic tricks instead of full-fledged magic. Then could they be human, after all? If so, what are they doing in Magix, especially if non-magical beings aren’t supposed to be there?
